Two Poems by Dawnell Harrison

Indigo blue night

The sky blackened with crows
As the night dissolved bit by bit

In an indigo blue light.
My breath lay vaulted in the spring

Air as the street lights lit up blocks
Inch by inch, corner by corner.

One great dive

You unbuttoned my bones
With your tender hands

And I handed you my heart
In one great dive

Into the sea’s waves.
The tides blew spindrift

Across the ocean’s mayhem
And the winds coughed

In one fantastic breath.
I lay before you warm and

Wanting as your hands touch
My translucent skin
In a quivering ball of desire.
